I didn't expect Disney Land in Dingle, however we got a really atmospheric afternoon with some fab animals and amazing staff. What's more, you can buy fresh caught local fish to cook... More

If you visit Dingle, there are two things you should try to do. Take a trip out to see Fungi and visit Dingle Oceanworld. While it is not massive in size there is so much to see and do. It would keep the child, or the child in you, occupied for hours. There is always something new and the staff... More

It was a great experience - firstly, to see all the fishes and other creatures in well designed tanks that not only served their purpose of habitats well, but also more often than not looked like true works of art. The information about the residents of those tanks was provided in catchy, detailed, but not overwhelming manner, and in addition... More

I went here years ago when I was younger and was really impressed with how much it's been improved over the years. Great selection of marine life to see, the otters are really fun and best of all the staff especially Clodagh were really knowledgeable about the animals and could give loads of information beyond what one might normally expect....

What a great aquarium, we watched the penguins and otters play for a long time. Plus a pool with rays we could touch. Fantastic.
